The ultimate gift to give yourself on Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day!

As I mature, I often notice that some of us fail to give ourselves the ultimate gift on Valentine’s Day, and that is the gift of SELF-LOVE!

Yes, it all starts with you. To get the love you want you must begin with self-love.

Follow these simple self-love tools to give yourself the ultimate Valentine’s gift today:

Spend some time alone

Give yourself time to take a break from social media and people. Be one with your thoughts. Write down all the positive attributes you have within you. You can also write a love note to yourself.

Meditate

I know, I write about this constantly. So many studies show the benefits of mediation for your brain, so loving yourself is also honoring your body, mind, and spirit by meditating.

Read empowering memes

Jump on Pinterest, or Google search self-love, and “empowering memes,” the trick is to rewire your brain into happy Wonder Woman mode.

Do something nice for yourself

Buy yourself perfume, or whatever tickles your fancy; it’s a sure way to boost your dopamine.

Take a self-love bath

Slap on a honey mask, or throw some rose pedals and get in the tub. You can add these essential oils that are skin loving:

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile)
Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanoides)
Frankincense (Boswellia carterii)
Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha)

Buy a rose quartz crystal

This may sound hooky, but it works. Try this ritual:

Each morning, hold a rose quartz stone in your dominant hand. Breathe in and out deeply. Affirm out loud, โ€œI choose love.โ€ Say this affirmation as many times as you need to until your heart and your head feel that these words are true.

In the evening, lie down on your bed, a yoga mat, or on any other flat surface, and set a timer for 11 minutes. Place your rose quartz over your heart, close your eyes, and just breathe. Know in your heart and soul that you are loved, and that love is the foundation of all things. Doing this nightly also clears any built-up frustration or negative emotions from the day, giving you a clean slate to begin the next day again in a place of love.

You can also drop the Rose Quartz crystai in your tub when you take a love bath.
